  • Senior Researcher, Colin Atkinson

    "It was always my ambition to go into research after graduating from university. I enjoy finding out how and why things work, especially if it is intellectually stimulating."


    Every day is different which is one of the main attractions of working in research. The latest innovative project I worked on was an investigation of injectant coal and gasification in blast furnaces – a very exciting project which involved working with partners at Imperial College in London, Centro Sviluppo Materiali in Italy and ThyssenKrupp Stahl in Germany.

    The best thing about my job is the strong professional and personal relationships that I have built up over the years with academic and industrial partners across Europe
